A Box of Colour

 

spools mosaic

A button has been off my coat for a couple of weeks.   I finally thought I should sew it back on so I went off to the sewing caddy to get a needle and thread.   I opened up the box that held the spools of thread and lost track of the button.  I eventually did sew the button back on the coat but in the mean time I had some fun with photography.

I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.    Have a great day.   Valerie

I love to see the ordinary lifted to the exceptional in a photo. This is a lovely shot of colour on a dull day!

I saw all the thread and had to look again to make sure I was on your blog and not Jen's. :-)
Colourful mosaic.

Beautiful spools of thread. It's all in the eye of the beholder, isn't it? And you've shared your inspiration with us - thanks.

I LOVE this post. It brought an immediate smile to my face. It made me think of the old wooden spools of thread that my mother had Well done!

Did you hear me go ooohhh when I saw this mosaic? Maybe it is because I love to sew, or maybe it is because I love artfully arranged color...but I love this picture!

You've reminded me that I'd better fix the button on my coat before I lose it!

Gorgeous thread shots!

This collage demonstrates how beauty can be found in our everyday lives! I love it (my sewing box needs a good "declutter and organize" session.
